Need some career advice: Internet Brands
has had me for a few interview for a Project Manager, but Glassdoor
has some really bad things to say (and good, but those can be phony placements). Has anyone ever worked or know someone that worked there? What's it like?

I'll just put it out there that I want a super low stress environment and can care less if the company I work for actually accomplishes anything. This seems to be a major gripe on Glassdoor, and to me, is a bonus.
What I want so almost zero stress, ability to work remotely now and again, and a good work/life balance. If it's managing outsourced programmers updating a band-aid fixed PHP website, then so be it. Glass Door comments all say how low the pay is, but if they match what I want, then that's not an issue for me. The pay seems to be very low for programmers/developers, but the PM range seems in line with the market.
For those that don't know, IB is a website holding company. They started with CarsDirect.com and have since bought 100's of websites that make money. The range from enterprise level PHP backend How-to guides to "Bob's Listing of Bed and Breakfasts" running on an Access DB and FrontPage extensions. Really not cutting edge stuff, and run on shoe-string budgets.
